Internet Explorer no Internet access Server 2003 R2

Last Modified: 2015-10-06
I inherited a system that will be updated very soon. In the meantime I was using LogMeIn Backup to backup the server. For the life of me I can't remember how I installed it.

It has been working up until a couple days ago. Now it will not connect to the backup server. I was advised to reinstall... no problem except that the server's IE cannot connect to the Internet. I get the usual white page "Internet Explorer Cannot Display the Webpage".

I can ping any website through a command prompt both with an IP address and a typical url (www.whatever.com) and I get hits with no problem.

I've relaxed security as far as possible in IE (tho I may be missing something), and enhanced security is NOT installed.

Can anyone help me connect? FWIW I'm connecting to the server via remote dt, all of which works fine.
